Sun Scout

By Benjohn Barnes

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


If your work or play requires sunlight, Sun Scout is built for you. Turn your iPhone in to a magic lens. Point it at the sky to understand where the sun will be and when it will be there.

Sun Scout uses your device's compass. For best results, calibrate your iPhone's compass, even when your phone does not prompt you to do so. Check out this video to see how:

Important note: Like all compasses, Sun Scout is adversely influenced by metal in vehicles and buildings. Sun Scout is only as good as the iPhone's compass and is prone to a variable margin of accuracy even under fair conditions. Do not base high-value production decisions solely on Sun Scout. Confirming them using sun charts and a technical scouting mission during the time of day of a future shoot.

romano01, US App Store – "This app has come in handy more then once this week alone. While working on a feature film called "fairhaven" the gaffer and I (key Grip) needed to find out where and when the sun would be for a scene… well after i pulled out my Sun Scout App. everyone started downloading it!!! It is well worth it."

WPSHM, US App Store – "This should win a gajillion awards for usability and simplicity. I love it!!!!"
